DAI is holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in June, which is to be followed by our monthly Café Le Brain.

This year we have a very special invited guest speaker after the AGM, who will present at our Cafe, which will be a DAI “Meeting Of The Minds” event with a difference!

Title: The Problem of Dementia: Why It’s a Crisis & What We Can Do About It

Presenter: Dr. Jason Karlawish, MD, Physician, Writer

DAY/DATE(S):

About the presentation: Once upon a time, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias were rare diseases and then it became common and, quickly, turned into a crisis. Why? What happened? And how does knowing what happened help us decide what we should do about it? This “Meeting of the Minds” takes on these questions.
